Kevin Mullins:
Fire in the Paint Locker

April 12, 2019 — August 11, 2019

Kevin Mullins was known for producing compelling, complex, luminous, lyrical surfaces. He was at the height of his career when he passed away suddenly in March of 2018. A celebration of his work and life seems most fitting as his artistic career included 15 years at the Ulrich Museum as Exhibitions Curator.


The Ulrich Museum of Art is proud to have organized a retrospective of Kevin’s work. The exhibit, co-curated by Ann Resnick and Dan Rouser, celebrated 30 years of Kevin’s work drawn from private and public collections including the Ulrich’s recent acquisition, God Blind Me, 2017. In addition, the Ulrich is pleased to have produced a limited-edition, award-winning catalogue to accompany the exhibit, featuring essays by David Butler, Elizabeth Dunbar, Bill North, Mike Odom and David Reed.

The exhibition and catalogue were made possible by major sponsorship from Emprise Bank.
